the ability to take up huge responsibilities and still smile through
it all. This week's Celebrity Edition of 'Supermom' honors such

hidden facts about their lives and childhood through the best means
possible; their mothers; Otunba N.O. Ogungbe and Alhaja Risikat Ajide
Adebayo who tell it all and tell it well. Marriage, according to the

Following the press release by Charly Boy that Ed Jatto, publisher of Danfo Express should play the tape of Charly Boy’s gay and Illuminati at a public press conference, Jatto has reacted by saying that he would prefer to meet Charly Boy in court.
“I find it laughable that Charly Boy is subtly backtracking now,” said Jatto. “He knows I have the tape, I told him when he asked me, and if he had asked to listen to it then, I wouldn’t have minded playing it to him.
“As it is now, I am not interested in playing it to him at any kangaroo press conference. Charly Boy believes so much in suing people. We all know he has sued National Mirror and now he wants to sue me too so I’ll just say he should go ahead and sue and we’ll meet in court where the tape will eventually be played for the whole world to hear.”

bravery, selflessness and prayers.

A woman who spent approximately $15,000 on illegal butt and hip injections has shed light on the secretive world of black market cosmetic procedures in a new book.
In a raw and honest account, Vanity Wonder, 30, a mother-of-two from America's Midwest, has revealed how she became addicted to silicone shots to increase the size of her behind.
Shot Girls sees her detail her own experiences of seeking out and having the injections, and how she became an assistant to a black market practitioner, who treated women as varied as a 17-year-old brought in by her proud mother and even a senior in her seventies with bifocals and false teeth.
'So many people tell so many lies about the women who get injections,' she explained. 'It's such a secretive thing. I decided to tell people rather than letting them just guess.'
Discussing the reasons women choose to undergo the procedure on the black market in the first place, risking infection and even death, she said it is not, as many people seem to believe, because they are trying to please a man, or are deeply depressed.

You always put a lot of energy into your performance particularly on stage, where does all the energy come from?
The fact is that my desire to make people laugh anywhere gives me much energy to do what I know how to do. I don’t like to be in a place where people are not making noise or not shouting or generally making fun. I love to keep where I am as lively as I could. My performance is very natural and in fact, there is no amount of drugs that can induce the kind of excitement that I get when I am on stage. As a matter of fact, been on stage makes me high and the desire to have fun and crack joke make my performance so energetic. Even in the church; I like to make noise, not to talk of been on stage. Those who are saying things like that obviously don’t really know who I am.

What do you think about him wearing this to work
“The 35-year-old Godwin Okon, who works as a house cleaner in the hotel, connived with my house help and did anal sex with my daughter. This man is a professional because at the end of the day nothing happened at the front (vagina). He penetrated my daughter through the anus and gave her his manhood for sucking. The house help, being an accomplice, told my daughter that ‘If you tell your mum, she will spank you,’ so my daughter became scared and she didn’t tell me about the first incident.”
That Julius ‘D Genius’ Agwu, stand up comic, actor, filmmaker and proponent of the fast evolving musi-comedy was born into a poverty-stricken family in Choba, then an obscure village in Rivers State, is no longer fodder for the media. Despite that indigent background, the comedy fireball has evolved into one of Nigeria’s most successful entertainers. But a lot of people do not know how very poor the Agwus were. His mother, then a petty trader, knows. And the memory is still very fresh. And she is telling her story, no-holds-barred, and like never before, to the world through the Supermom Celebrity Edition reality television show.
According to her, theirs was a strict Catholic family comprising two boys, three girls and a pikin as Julius fondly describes himself. The head of the family was a bricklayer and the mother had to improvise the meager earning from her petty trading with fishing and farming. Survival was tough but the resilience and steadfastness of the mother helped to see that her kids, especially the very precocious Julius, went to school. “Julius started hawking with his brothers when he was around six years old.
